Barjac Production / Telfrance

This Wednesday, April 18th, at 8:35 pm, Barjac Production launched in prime-time on France 2 the adventures of MY CRAZY TRIBE.

It was a winning gamble because this family comedy ended up being the most watched program of the night in France with an audience share of 22,3% and nearly 6 million viewers! Since last September, it’s double the usual results for this prime-time slot.

MY CRAZY TRIBE is the story of Isabelle Garnier, a mother whose destiny is forever changed by her husband’s desertion … After 25 years of marriage and three children – two of which are adopted -, he leaves her and empties the family’s bank accounts in less than 24 hours.  Her quiet life as a naive and charitable housewife suddenly becomes a story of survival.  She finds herself a providential job in a funeral parlor. Along with her young protégée Wanda, a former prostitute, she comes up with the idea for a one-of-a-kind partnership. What if former sex workers helped all these bereaved, mourning lonely relatives left to deal with their grief? All in good faith of course … Unfortunately, her professional and family situation starts spinning out of control very quickly…

Two new episodes of MY CRAZY TRIBE will go to filming at the end of May: Isabelle Garnier and her quirky family will soon be back on French screens!
